Hide And Seek
A junkie lies dead in an Edinburgh squat; spreadeagled; cross-like on the floor; between two burned-down candles; a five-pointed star daubed on the wall above. Just another dead addict - until John Rebus begins to chip away at the indifference; treachery; deceit
and sleaze that lurks behind the facade of the Edinburgh familiar to tourists. Only Rebus seems to care about a death which looks more like a murder every day; about a seductive danger he can almost taste; appealing to the darkest corners of his mind
Tooth And Nail
They call him the Wolfman - because he takes a bite out of his victims and because they found the first victim in the East End's lonely Wolf Street. Scotland Yard
are anxious to find the killer and Inspector Rebus is drafted in to help. But his Scotland Yard opposite number; George Flight; isn't happy at yet more interference; and Rebus finds himself dealing with racial prejudice as well as the predations of a violent maniac. When Rebus is offered a serial killer profile of the Wolfman by an attractive female psychologist; it's too good an opportunity to miss. But in finding an ally; he may have given his enemies an easy means of attack.
The Naming of the Dead
A murder has been committed - but as the victim was a rapist; recently released from prison; no one is too concerned about the crime. That is; until Detective Inspector John Rebus and DS Siobhan Clarke uncover evidence that a serial killer is on the loose... When Rebus also starts looking into the apparent suicide of an MP; he is abruptly warned off the case; not least because the G8 leaders have gathered in Scotland; and Rebus's bosses want him well out of the way. But Rebus has never been one to stick to the rules; and when Siobhan has a very personal reason for hunting down a riot cop; it looks as though both Rebus and Clarke may be up against their own side...
The Black Book
When a close colleague is brutally attacked; Inspector John Rebus is drawn into a case involving a hotel fire; an unidentified body; and a long forgotten night of terror and murder. Pursued by dangerous ghosts and tormented by the coded secrets of his colleague's notebook; Rebus must piece together the most complex and confusing of jigsaws. But not everyone wants the puzzle solved - perhaps not even Rebus himself...
It is August in Edinburgh and the Festival is in full swing... A brutally tortured body is discovered in one of the city's ancient subterranean streets and marks on the corpse cause Rebus to suspect the involvement of sectarian activists. The prospect of a terrorist atrocity in a city heaving with tourists is almost unthinkable. When the victim turns out to be the son of a notorious gangster; Rebus
realises he is sitting atop a volcano of mayhem - and it's just about to erupt.
Let it Bleed
The seventh Inspector Rebus novel from 'Britain's No.1 crime writer' DAILY MIRROR. Struggling through another Edinburgh winter Rebus finds himself sucked into a web of intrigue that throws up more questions than answers. Was the Lord Provost's daughter kidnapped or just another runaway? Why is a city
councillor shredding documents that should have been waste paper years ago And why on earth is Rebus invited to a clay pigeon shoot at the home of the Scottish Office's Permanent Secretary Sucked into the machine that is modern Scotland; Rebus confronts the fact that some of his enemies may be beyond justice.
Black And Blue
Rebus is juggling four cases trying to nail one killer - who might just lead back to the infamous Bible John. And he's doing it under the scrutiny of an internal inquiry led by a man he has just accused of taking backhanders from Glasgow's
Mr Big. As if this wasn't enough; there are TV cameras at his back investigating a miscarriage of justice; making Rebus a criminal in the eyes of a million or more viewers. Just one mistake is likely to mean an unpleasant and not particularly speedy death or; worse still; losing his job.
The Hanging Garden

Telford is known to have close links with a Chechen gangster bringing refugees into Britain as prostitutes. When Rebus takes under his wing a distraught Bosnian call girl; it gives him a personal reason to make sure Telford goes back to Paisley and pronto. Then Rebus's daughter is the victim of an all too professional hit-and-run and Rebus knows that there is now nothing he won't do to bring down prime suspect Tommy Telford - even if it means cutting a deal with the devil.
